    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Look at the script /etc/init.d/pure-ftpd and see where the pid file is located. Then, as root (or sudo), remove that file. Then, you should be able to restart the service.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
